When to Change 2000 Hyundai Sonata Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Hyundai Sonata? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Hyundai recommends changing your 2000 Sonata’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Sonata may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Sonata. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2000 Hyundai Sonata?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2000 Hyundai Sonata motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2000 Hyundai Sonata vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Sonata's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

2000 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Sonata engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Sonata’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Sonata oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Sonata spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
